Patty Cake, Patty Cake!

I baked this cake for a very special lady who has alot of faith in me in my creations.  Patty used to do wedding cakes and can't no longer but has so much faith in me that she gave her cake pans, books, tools, etc.  The least I could do was bake her a cake to show my gratitude.  Since I have been wanting to try scroll work, I thought I'd give it a shot on her cake.

I really enjoyed spending my day with you, Sonny, Aunt Jeanie & Uncle Harry, Honey and my little man, Sean.  We had a wonderful visit, lunch was great and so was the cake if I do say so myself :)!

Congratulations Chirstina!!

Congratulations Chirstina on your upcoming bundle of joy!  Thank you for the pleasure of making your shower cake and cookies.  I had a ball with these. 

Hope you had a wonderful shower!!

Up for a game of golf?

I was asked if I would do cookies for a fundraiser for Natalie's Dance Co.  They were having a golf outing and this is what I came up with.  I have to say this  must be one of my favorite projects I have done so far.

I am so pleased with these.  I hope everyone enjoyed them!

Soccer Time

I had a request for soccer balls.............let me tell you, not the easiest thing to do.  Here's the end result.

They didn't come out too bad huh?  Well, at least I know I can do

Want to go bowling?

It was my brother-in-laws birthday and he came to visit us from Florida.  He's a huge bowler, it's practically his passion so I decided why not make this cake for his birthday.  He's not much of a cake person, but he sure loves my sugar cookies which is what I made the bowling pins out of.  I made a devils food chocolate cake with buttercream icing.  I hand painted the ball and the cake to make it look like a floor.  Take a look.....

Then I realized I didn't have anywhere to write "Happy Birthday" so my husband suggested I do it on a pin.
Here's a side view

and another side view

My brother-in-law is not a big cake person but he loved it!  We did too!

Happy Birthday Donny
